Apply for tree works consent
You will need to submit an application form for consent to carry out work on a protected tree or trees in a conservation area. This includes trees that encroach over your boundary, which you would usually be able to remove as part of your common law rights.
Once we have received your application a tree officer will assess the proposed works. We will the provide advice and make recommendations in order to maintain the health and stability of the tree(s). A decision will be made within 6-8 weeks from when we receive your application.
